What We Believe

What We Believe

WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God, the final authority for faith and practice. (2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:16)

WE BELIEVE in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who are co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14)

WE BELIEVE that man was created in innocence, but fell in Adam, and is now totally unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:10-23)

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through his substitutionary death on the cross; our salvation is made sure by his literal physical resurrection from the grave.

WE BELIEVE that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE in the eternal salvation of the believer and the eternal judgment of all who reject Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into truth; and, that He is the supernatural agent in regeneration, baptizing believers into the Body of Christ, indwelling, and sealing them until the day of redemption.

WE BELIEVE that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ.

WE BELIEVE it is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations.

WE BELIEVE that all followers of Jesus should follow his example in making a public profession of their faith through baptism by emersion. (Matthew 3:13-17)

WE BELIEVE the Lord Jesus Christ commanded His Church to observe two ordinances, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

WE BELIEVE that God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church.

WE BELIEVE in the personal coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for his redeemed ones.
